Advances in aerodynamics and jet engine technology after World War Two led to the RAF requesting a bomber that could use these new technologies. To meet this, the Avro team adopted a Delta wing design. The design of the Delta wing Vulcan was a major gamble. However, it proved an incredibly valuable asset. After serving over three decades with the RAF, it was retired in 1984, but continued to display fly until 2015. With over 150 images, this book explores the history of the Vulcan, from concept to manufacture to service, providing insight from those who developed, designed, and flew it.
